Glen Murcutt's Environmentally Responsible Architecture

Pritzker Prize-winning architect Glenn Murcutt's designs for environmentally responsible architecture draw on aboriginal building principles.

" Titled, "Some Old, Some New and Some to Come: Thirty-odd Years Working with Australian Landscapes," the lecture concerned Murcutt's unique and famed ideas about construction. Based on Aboriginal building principles and the idea that people change their clothes to suit the weather, Murcutt's buildings are changeable according to the temperature. Movable doors and screens are staples in his work, and he claims that many of his buildings require neither heating nor cooling systems."
